It is required that all coaches and volunteers (dependent on role) who have regular contact with swimmers, players and divers are required to attend a Safeguarding and Protecting Children workshop within three months of starting their role. A certificate from this course lasts for 3 years. As many of our volunteers use social media, the course organised by the region will also tackle issues that may arise from coaches, players, swimmers and divers, communicating via these platforms with each other and a wider audience.
This course is suitable for all clubs looking to complete their SwimMark accreditation or those clubs who will be required to complete Stronger Affiliation before the end of 2020. Clubs are required to submit a report for coaches and teachers which must demonstrate that all coaches/teachers within the club have a valid safeguarding qualification. It is also a requirement for both SwimMark and Stronger Affiliation that the Welfare Officer must have a valid Safeguarding qualification.
Swim England currently accepts face-to-face and online Safeguarding training delivered by UK Coaching.
